Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has declared that he had recovered from coronavirus, noting that another test conducted on him came back negative.
The governor confirmed his latest health status today while briefing reporters at the Government House in Akure, the state capital.
According to him, “After some days in isolation, our team of doctors decided to take a sample and I was tested again in accordance with the treatment protocols of COVID-19. The result came earlier today, and I tested negative.
“Let me firstly give thanks to God for his mercies. I thank all citizens and residents of Ondo State who have shown me great love and genuine affection.
“They have shown this through their prayers, phone calls, and kind words expressing their regrets and solidarity. Rest assured that I am deeply inspired by your faith and goodwill and I wish to state categorically that this season shall soon pass away,” he said.
Just last Tuesday, the governor announced that he was positive, albeit asymptomatic. He also had a back and forth argument with his deputy on handing over power some couple of days ago before declaring his latest status.
